Man Utd Beats Sunderland 3 – 0

107

Manchester United moved above rivals Manchester City to the top of the Premier League with a comfortable win

over struggling Sunderland.

After a slow start, Memphis Depay scored his fourth of the season by tucking in from Juan Mata’s cut-back.

United doubled the lead 40 seconds after the break as Wayne Rooney bundled over to end an 11-game scoring drought in the Premier League.

Mata then converted Ashley Young’s cross as Sunderland stayed bottom.

Until Depay slid in the opener in first-half stoppage time, the hosts looked ponderous in attack but once they went 2-0 up after good work from Anthony Martial, Sunderland had little to offer in response.

Rooney’s goal took him level with Denis Law as United’s joint-third leading league scorer with 171 goals, and ended his longest barren spell in the Premier League.

David De Gea was rarely troubled but made two good saves from Jeremain Lens, meaning United have conceded just once in the league at home this season.
